Michelle Obama: How Many Abortions?

On my other blog yesterday (Tuesday), I said the media should ask Michelle Obama how many abortions she's had. Is that nasty? Not really.

After all, if Sarah Palin and her family are fair game for any conceivable questions, then the same should be true of the Obama family. If Bristol Palin's sex life and contraception practices are fit subjects for the media, then why should the Obamas --including their children -- be excluded from similar enquiries? What's fair for the goose should also be fair for the gander.

Consider Sarah Palin's recent comments on what things annoy her.

"Bored, anonymous, pathetic bloggers who lie annoy me....I'll tell you, yesterday the Anchorage Daily News, they called again to ask — double-, triple-, quadruple-check — who is Trig's real mom. And I said, Come on, are you kidding me? We're gonna answer this? Do you not believe me or my doctor? And they said, No, it's been quite cryptic the way that my son's birth has been discussed. And I thought, Okay, more indication of continued problems in the world of journalism."

Do I really believe the MSM will ask Michelle Obama -- and at a later date, her daughters, Sasha and Malia -- questions about their sex lives and contraception practices? No, it will never happen. The Obama children -- and Michelle herself -- are "off limits." Thus, it's okay to ask them nonsensical questions concerning the "First Dog" but not about much else. (If questions about the pooch are the only ones deemed appropriate, then we might enquire what happened to the "rescue dog" Obama previously mentioned.

Michelle Obama, "America's First Lady," has spent much of her life -- going back to her days at Princeton -- advocating Black Separatism. Like her husband, she spent 20 years attending a church, one headed by Rev. Wright, preaching Black Liberation Theology. Among other charges, Wright said that the U. S. government "invented" the AIDS virus in order to kill Black people.

Why isn't the media asking if Michelle Obama agrees with Rev. Wright? Of even more interest, does Barack Obama agree with his former pastor? And do Sasha and Malia have any views on the subject?

The American people know very little about Barack and Michelle Obama. The media should rectify that, but it probably won't.
